Common Snipe?

I saw a bird as I was leaving for work this morning. It had been on the edge of our lawn and flushed as I walked towards it. I did not see it until it was flying and it reminded me of a sandpiper type of bird, although a little rounder than most sandpipers. I tried to locate where it landed (it had flown around behind the house), but was unable to do so. I think it may have been a common snipe.
